All pet owners need to study in advance the characteristics of those whom they want to tame: be it a dog, cat, or hamster. For the latter, many belittle the requirements, which is wrong: the structure of the hamster’s body is just as complex, it needs a special approach. The skeleton of a hamster is fragile, so it is advisable to study its features.

Despite its small size, the front legs of the animal are quite well developed; in nature, in the wild, they dig the ground with them. There are four fingers on these paws, there is also the fifth one, but it is almost undeveloped (atrophied).
